    Hi @Douglas, this will be down to it needing a Firewall rule, you will need to create one from the zone you are connecting from to the Zone which has the IP address, so if it LAN-WAN you need to create one for HTTPS Management and set to the X1 Interface IP as the destination or you if you have an LAN-WAN-ANY Allow rule all ready in place, just enable the option for enable management in the rule.

    I tried all your suggestions earlier but without success so I was beginning to think it could not be done. Since you confirmed it could be done I back tracked up the network and found a switch port that was configured incorrectly. It works now!

    Thank you very much. Your comments lead me to the problem.
